    The Unicode Technical Committee has posted a new issue for public review
    and comment. Details are on the following web page:


    The review period for the new item closes on June 8, 2004.

    Please see the page for links to discussion and relevant documents.
    Briefly, the new issue is:

    29 Normalization Issue (Closes 2004.06.08)

    There is a problem in the language of the specification of Unicode
    Standard Annex #15: Unicode Normalization Forms for forms NFC and NFKC. A
    textual fix is required to make normalization formally self-consistent. The
    fix will not have an impact on real data found in practice (with the
    possible exception of test cases for the algorithm itself), because the
    affected sequences do not constitute well-formed text in any language.
    Details, cases, and recommendations can be found in the review document.

    If you have comments for official UTC consideration, please post them by
    submitting your comments through our feedback & reporting page:
